We're all excited about the boy, but come on, no wonder people burn out early and get too much pressure too soon... :roll:

It makes me SO angry!
If he can't take the pressure now he won't be able to do so later. I wonder what jamaican newspapers wrote about Bolt after he ran a 19.93 at the age of 17.

Well, to the great disappointment of certain sections of the British media, Chambers won in 10.26, Gemelli second in 10.29, and Dasaolu third in 10.31. Not particularly great times....

Ennis won the womens' 100m hurdles as Porter stumbled over the last hurdle.

Josie, aged 5, watching her first live athletics disagreed with you.

John, aged 46, also disagrees. Aside from the fact Jess was sensational in horrible conditions, I don't think it's about the 'athletes of note' (I assume you mean the medal hopes). i think it's about the athletes for whom the crowning glory of their lives will be scraping into an Olympic team or even an Olympic Trials final. I thought there were some great moments yesterday. The W800 and M3000SC were cracking races. The men's 400 heats were unbelievably tense. I also thought Gemili, Judd, Weightman and Sharp all looked like future world class athletes. possibly Murray too. Can't wait for today's.

well we can agree on that; a certain poster of repute tells us that the athletes in the UK trials did not really care anyway.

My last post was to Mumps post; were you, John G , at the same trials as I watched. "The womens 800m was a cracking race ". :lol:

I will always recall this race as a sumptuous example of a so called top and experienced runner showing proof of the most inane stupidity possible. A ridiculous race.


The performances of all but Ennis as I immediately recall were ordinary verging on the poor or unconvincing ,with little or no people stepping up the plate signicantly for the OG Trials and dont tell me about the weather... it was cool, sure, just like Londons going to be. And Helsinki!!

Sadly I have to agree, where are the breakout performances? Are conditions that bad? Will Helskinki results select the final team?

Awful images of Jodie Williams breaking down during the 100m final, I didn't see the semi but she never looked comfortable in that race. Why would you let her run?

I'd hoped that's team of Abi, Jodie, Asha and one more could have challenged for a spot in the London finals but all have been struck with injury. Fingers crossed that Abi's twinge was just that and she'll be back in time.

The British press glamorized mediocrity in the sport. Just making the A standard is seen as a great achievement. No wonder,their standard is so low.Not to mention the over-hyping of junior athletes when they show a little potential. All of a sudden they are going to be the next Bolt or Allyson Felix.

Well at least things have brightened up with the long jump. Proctor broke the 29-year-old UK record with 6.95m (0.1) and the competition was almost definitely the best ever on home-soil among domestic athletes. Lorraine Ugen set a PB of 6.74m (she's sort of fell off the radar a bit after her wind-aided 6.80m+ in the USA a few months ago) with Jazmin Sawyers setting a PB and world junior leading mark of 6.64m.

Ennis was a bit :? though after a super day yesterday. 6.27m isn't overly tragic but she was having all sorts of problems with her run-up and only had one decent effort out of six. She really needs to learn how to consistently bang out a good jump in one of her opening rounds though.

Abi is fine buy precautionary to pull out, she'll be running 200m in Helsinki

Already today just in the wLJ we saw more great performances that the rest of the championships out together. I think they were inspired by the legendary Mary Rand being in attendance :D

Lorraine Ugen 1cm of A standard :cry: this is the kind of performance we haven't seen from anyone else, raising their game for 2012

I think it is good experience for juniors to compete at the junior level and maximise their winning performances. At the senior level it becomes much harder to win medals.
Having said that I also think if an athlete is capable and willing they should compete at the senior level (while a junior) in major competitions eg worlds, europeans, commonwealth and even the olympics.

Bearing in mind the comments I made numerous times about rushing Jodie last year and how wrong I thought it, I was interested to read Afilaka 's comments about Gemili in todays Telegraph with which I so agree; how inadvised it is to ruin careers by rushing young athletes into heavy senior competitions for which they are not mentally ready and his remarks about the number of young athletes who never recover from excessive pressure heaped on them by the notorious British media and others. Acc to Afilaka, Gemili was pooped by the pressures this w/e and the Juniors in Barcelona are priority numero uno.

sensible guy who seen it all before.

Hope Gemili concentrates on the the lesser task in the Juniors.

It's also an Olympics in his home country, an opportunity that will never happen again.

He should though avoid the relay aand all media so as not to feed the idiotic hype that is bound to surround him.

I thought Okoro's mistake just added to the drama. Great home straight battle between a veteran and a junior with a complete outsider coming through to take in the latter stages.

A lot of people think I'm quite strange, getting so much enjoyment from a minority sport. Didn't expect to get ridiculed for it on one of the sports own message boards. :lol:

Serious question, Fromage - why do you follow the sport?

Aust targets six Olympics athletics medals

"Athletics Australia high performance manager Eric Hollingsworth has long flagged an ambitious target of six medals in London - a figure not achieved by Australia at Olympic or world championships level since Mexico City in 1968."

Jessica Zelinka, Dylan Armstrong head Canada's Olympic track squad
Jul 1, 2012
"Canada has targeted three medals in London and between six and eight top-eight finishes."

John G,
Anybody who thinks that pleasure from Track and Field is strange is weird; its a great sport relatively untainted by the crazy excesses of national team sports , vast amounts of money, ridiculous egos , etc, etc. the world over, especially professional ball sports such as soccer, and the corrupt stuff in another country! Minority sport , be buggered. A great sport.A centre piece of the OG.

I follow our great sport more in my seventies than I did since the 48 games ,as I have more time and the tv and computer connects me all over the world with whats happening, and instantly.

I profoundly disagree with your estimation of a great race in the womens 800m at the w/e with a lot of moderate talents afraid to even follow through to a sub 2 mins result and the crazy running of Okoro.

I abhor the attitude that we are all bound to say nothing but wonderful( so called "positive") things about our own countries athletes, even when unjustified and unrealistic; sadly, a lot of track fans around, especially in ones own country, think that love of our sport translates to little interest in Track and field around the globe merely at home.

Frankly, I am at least as interested, or even more, in many cases in the American Olympic Trials than the milk and water stuff over the w/e in Birmingham.

I was quoting the article.
I assume it means folks not named to the squad can pursue a team spot in upcoming competitions. I'm also curious as to who can/ will... esp if Sharp would pursue an "A" so more Brits can run the 800m.


Which I now see was not the intent of the text... no chasing.

one swallow does not a summer make.

A very excellent performance by PSD, but it aint three rounds in the OG.

PSD went public with her thoughts the other day and said she is not yet ready for medals perhaps in her career, but her ambition is to reach the final, which in a rather indifferent year for womens 400m hurdles is within her compass.

Compared to some of the most poisonous racism I've read in years that PSD's performance attracted on the Daily Telegraph's comment sections, I have no problem with anything here.

Try reading , flumpy, its not too hard ;

I said PSD's performance was a fine performance which it was, but a DL performance and not 3 rounds, and I then quoted what she had said herself about her chances in August. Not that PSD would know as much about herself as some self important self styled superfan :lol:

Her performance was not downgraded by me , you twerp, but unlike the AW nutters which you represent so well I do NOT hang medals round peoples necks like you and your friend Mump Boy.

Answer - I didn't.

Nice try, but failed. Again. "Jesus, that rag is getting worse" was my quote.

"The Telegraph, a poisonous, racist rag, errol?" was your quote.

If your going to be patronising, stop being a berkeley hunt and get pedantic - it just won't work otherwise. I'm good at this, you are not.
